Heidi Klum may be statuesque but she isn’t one to stand still for long. The supermodel and television producer sold her gated Brentwood estate for $24 million in about a month.
The Italian-style mansion was built in 1999, more than a decade before the occasional actress and serial home remodeler purchased it in 2010 with her then-husband, R&B singer Seal, for $14.2 million.
The 12,300 square feet of living space, renovated by Klum to model home perfection, was fitted with such one-of-a-kind features as a domed library with a massive bookcase from Napoleon’s country retreat in France.
There are living, family and dining rooms, a butler’s pantry, a den, an office, a projection room, a temperature-controlled wine room, eight bedrooms and 10 bathrooms. French doors throughout the house open to patios and terraces.
Rose gardens, lawns, a koi pond, hiking trails and an infinity-edge swimming pool and spa make up the 8.5 acres of grounds. Views include the ocean, nearby canyons and cityscape.
Klum, 41, won an Emmy for hosting “Project Runway,” of which she is also executive producer. The “America’s Got Talent” judge has also been on “Germany’s Next Top Model.”
The villa was her family home.
